Our Cedar Point Adventure May 2014 #BloggingatCP

To say the kids were excited, would be an understatement!! They began plotting and planning which rides they were going to go on WEEKS before! 

Here they are, from left, Cam, Rocco, Gino and Charlie, in the car, on the way there! 

They started out their adventure with lunch at Coral Courtyard. Hot dogs, yummy mac and cheese and more were on the menu. The kids needed to get fueled up for the big day ahead of them!

And how can you not enjoy such a gorgeous view?? I love the beach at Cedar Point, it is one of my favorite scenic spots at the park.

Rocco won a banana man, cool!

They really enjoyed the stunt show too. This is one of the shows we try to catch every year. 

 

A group shot of the crazy kids!

They got to ride a lot of rides, here were the favorites! 

  • Corkscrew
  • Gemini
  • Blue Streak
  • Pipe Scream
  • Monster
  • Scrambler
  • Shoot the Rapids
  • Iron Dragon 

Towards the end of the day, they enjoyed dinner at Joe Cool Cafe. Everyone was impressed with the menu choices and food portions, really something for everyone!

This year they are also offering all day dining deals, see them here.

So what else is new at Cedar Point?? 

Cedar Point is offering lots of new rides and attractions this year!

1. Pipe Scream -- Billed as "combining the best of a roller coaster and a flat ride in one," Pipe Scream will spin riders along 302 feet of track, reaching a maximum height of 43 feet and at speeds topping 40 mph!

2. Lake Erie Eagles -- Guests on Lake Erie Eagles will sit in one of eight ride carriages that are suspended from arms located more than 28 feet above the ground. As the ride begins its cycle, the carriages will swing outward simulating the sensation of flight. A paddle on the carriages will allow guests to alter their flight experience from mild to wild!

3. Chickie's and Pete's -- Known for their legendary Crabfries, this popular restaurant will also feature signature Philly Cheese Steaks and Lisa's Blonde Lobster Pie. Chickie's and Pete's was recently named as one of the "Ten Best Sports Bars" in the country by USA Today.

4. Starbucks -- Early-risers will delight in the addition of a full-service Starbucks (in the former Donut Time). From fresh baked goods to your favorite coffee drinks, the baristas at Cedar Point's Starbucks are here to help you get your day off on the right foot.

5. Camp Snoopy Enhancements -- Camp Snoopy is celebrating its 15(th) anniversary at Cedar Point this summer with the addition of two relocated kid-favorite rides - Woodstock's Airmail (formerly Frog Hopper) and Wilderness Run (formerly Jr. Gemini).

6. Lighthouse Point Cabins -- 52 new deluxe cabins will be added to Lighthouse Point this summer. These new overnight options can accommodate up to 10 people and will feature two full bathrooms, four flat panel televisions, a dorm-size refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, outdoor charcoal grill and picnic table. (Reservations for the new cabins can be made immediately and room nights will be available beginning May 23.)

7. Luminosity: Ignite the Night - 2014 Edition -- This high-energy show promises to be better than ever in 2014 with an all-new lineup of music, dancing and a dazzling display of pyrotechnics! "Luminosity," amplified by North Coast Container and fueled by Marathon is performed nightly (except Tuesdays), May 30 - August 17.

8. SlingShot -- Later this summer, Cedar Point will take screaming to new heights when it opens its new SlingShot ride. Riders on SlingShot will be secured in an open-air two-person capsule before being launched nearly 360 feet into the sky at speeds of up to 62 mph! SlingShot will be located near the Gemini roller coaster and will be an extra charge amusement ride.

In addition to the above, the park will feature a variety of new food options this summer, including Auntie Anne's and Cinnabon in Challenge Park and new Coca-Cola Freestyle and Yogurt Plus locations along the Gemini Midway. Several new live shows will also debut this summer, including "Rockin' Country" in the Red Garter Saloon, "Lusty Lil's Revue" in the Palace Theatre and "Snoopy Unleashed" in the Good Time Theatre.
